    Pool deck, pool landscaping cracks

    Hi,
    I have question on cracks in concrete around my pool & I can categorize those cracks in 3.
    1) I have flow-over spa & there are stone tiles on top of spa edge. Couple of those stone times have started coming off. IMG_1401.jpg


    2) I see cracks between stone landscaping around my pool

    thanks,

    Please add our location under your name. That will be VERY helpful in our answer.

    I have some ideas but the location will help narrow it down.

    i love Frisco. Just like the foundation of your house, the clay soil reeks havoc on concrete. It looks like ground movement from the clay soil

    I have heard to people adding water drip systems around their house and pool to help with this problem. The soil expands and contracts as the soil/clay drys out then gets soaked from the big rains you have in that part of the world.

    You can use a flexible caulk to fill in the areas. It might have to be redone every once in a while due to the hot sun beating it up over time.
